Today's headlines from across the Atlantic where Jimmy Graham has been ruled a tight end, Houston Rockets disrespected Jeremy Lin in their free agency chase and Jozy Altidore reveals he's still injured.

Graham's Millions

We start off in the NFL, where Jimmy Graham has been officially ruled a Tight End by an arbitrator.

The New Orleans Saints star was hoping to be considered a wide receiver, which would have seen him earn 5 million dollars more this year on the franchise tag.

Over to the NBA, where the battle for Carmelo Anthony is heating up. The Chicago Bulls hosted him on Tuesday, while the All-Star is at the LA Lakers today.

The Houston Rockets caused controversy yesterday when they showed Melo in a Rockets number 7 jersey.

That number belongs to current Houston guard Jeremy Lin, who said he felt disrespected by the move.

USA injury Lies

And finally to the World Cup, where United States star Jozy Altidore revealed he still wasn’t fit to play in his teams 2-1 loss to Belgium.

This was despite the release from US Soccer saying Jozy was ready to play in the game.
